Just a basic build to get the juices flowing again.

Mostly out of the box, just a wheel and tire change so far, and lowering it. Going to be satin black with gloss black wheels. It's in primer right now, debating if I want to paint the roof a candy color or not.

Just mocked up for now

Made a bit more progress.. still deciding about the motor. was planning on using the kit motor, but now I kinda want something a little more flashy... I think I have a cadillac air cleaner here, maybe I will see how that looks.

i think primer body with a full paint roof is a pretty classic East LA pachuko look.

Door panels are in the purple pond for the third time now.... But I managed to get the seats close enough to be convincing in the car. Not perfect, but I think I'll take it.

Nevermind, figured it out.

Robbed the aircleaner from my 66 riv, and a parts box carb.

I think its the right size and just enough "flash"

Now onto the details....

Looking very nice.  If only it were SHINY :) :) :) .  Are those the kit tires?  I have 2 of the kits and the tires are blackwalls even though the box says tampo printed whitewalls.
